In the winter of 1705 the young composer Johann Sebastian Bach set off on a long journey by foot to visit the composer Dieterich Buxtehude, a distance of over 250 miles. Three centuries later, the writer Horatio Clare set off to recreate this walk.

The result is an imaginative evocation of what the composer would have seen and felt on his journey. Bach becomes Clare’s walking companion, a vestigial but real presence as he acutely observes the seasons and places he passes through.
